COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
IPA was originally brewed strong and hoppy to survive the long trip by sea from England to India. Treat yourself to this American version of a classic strong ale. 51.2 IBU

Growler from an Asheville grocer. Amber color. Most beautiful lace. Tastes of earthy leaves, sharp bitter hops, loads of citrus. Aroma of grapefruit and caramel malt. Finishes with sharp bitterness.(3525)

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Growler from Bruisin’ Ales on 11/1/08. Clear, burnt orange body under a large, creamy, rocky, off white head that lasts a long time and leaves a sticky, articulated lace. Fresh piney hop aroma with a good dose of caramel, and notable citrus. Medium body and light to medium carbonation, resinous, yet with nice smoothness and a dry palate. Solid caramel sweetness up front, quickly overtaken by an intense citrus rind bitterness that ushers in a long, dry finish. An excellent American style IPA, obviously very fresh, with all the right qualities.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Honey sweet aroma with slight fruit and citrus - like tangelos. Cloudy, rather dark in color with a lasting, thick and frothy head. Citrus twang with a dollop of bitterness at the swallow. Nice amount of maltiness. Nice.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Bomber. Hazy orange brew, nice white head. Citrusy nose, sharp, crisp hoppiness. It’s not a particularly unusual IPA, just a well-made one that’s refreshing and flavorful. Great stuff.

Draft at the source. Hazy amber color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of grapefruit taste is tropical fruit, moderate bitterness. Nice.

A lot like the Pisgah Pale Ale, but with a hoppier bite and bigger body. Grassy, rich, and tasty.

Poured from a growler; purchased at Greenlife Grocery in Asheville. Dark orange pour with a thick and creamy off-white head. Aroma of pine needles, rose petals, and tangerines. Nice hoppy bitterness, both floral and grassy, yet also very well balanced. Lingering, yet pleasant, bitterness on the palate. A good to above average IPA. (The growler lists this beer at 7.5% but the bottled version of Pisgah IPA is listed at 6.9%).

Draft at brewer. Pours a hazy orange with a medium white head. Nice lacing. Scent is citrus hoppy! Taste is very balanced between the caramel and hops. Crisp and tasty!

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2007
Growler @ Ken’s Walloping Wednesday – Dark copper, creamy white head. Nice nose here with aromatics of candied grapefruit that’s well blended into deep toffee malts and peachy butterscotch. Flavor is not as complex, but still good with soft bitter citric notes balancing on a sweet caramel tone. Very drinkable at 7.5% without a doubt. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry bitter finish. Well made and just a touch different then your standards. Thanks for sharing Schutzenliesel…

pours a clear semi cloudy copper with mild head. light smooth sudden hop aroma. front hops with bitterness in middle to finish, light aftertaste, hop abundance but well balanced.
